Huxley: Silverwolf’s Award-Winning Poem

February 12, 2014

Silverwolf herewith presents the poem which recently won him the coveted and prestigious¬†“Poet Laureate of the Silverwolf Nation” Title during the annual Poet Laureate’s competition. The announcement of the decision was greeted with lupine ululations of approbation untainted with opprobrium, much to Silverwolf’s gratification.

And now forthwith Silverwolf presents his award-winning poem: Huxley

Huxley

Right from the start you knew

From his dew-bespeckled spectacles

That his manner was eclectical

And his favors very few.

Huxley

His notions of emotions were subversive to the Corps

And they threw him out before his ears had dried,

But I’d love-ah to discover

How poor old Huxley’s mother

Had endeavored to supply them with his bride.

For she sent her wrapped in cardboard, with a note that said “For you”

And inside she placed the Lugar and the bomb.

When the package was unwrapped, and the plot-points had been mapped

They were broiled like cold confetti, at the Battle of the Somme.

 

Hooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww — Silverwolf
